Poetry Magnum Opus



Recommended Posts

The night moved like a sidewinder
through deserts of thought as those
leaving the earth rewound through
histories. Night left with his mouth
full of clouds and frozen thunder,
lightning. One snap of thunder for
those departing, one lick of lightning
for those being born, clouds released
rain, evening exhaled, winds of heaven
wiped the sidewinder's tracks to etch
names in the sand.

Hi Barry, I too like the "mouth full of clouds and frozen thunder" image. I find the whole thing a cosmic vision of reality, moving like an alternate mythology. Good balance to the lines, nuanced cadence.


Nice Work!
